We began as the first business in the redevelopment of the old state hospital, now known as Grand Traverse Commons, and have worked hard to remain an indispensable and authentic member of this flourishing community.

Our journey has been intertwined with the narrative of the Grand Traverse Commons, and we've been privileged to witness and contribute to its transformation.

Trattoria Stella steadfastly stands as a shining example of exceptional hospitality in Northern Michigan and further afield. Our unyielding commitment to quality is, and always will be, the bedrock upon which our business is built.

"We dined here the night of our wedding. Absolute excellent service. Food was more than we expected. Very romantic. Best glass of wine I've ever had. Also, one of the best meals we ever had. My husband talked about it for weeks. Look forward to dining here on our next trip to Traverse."

"Ive never had a more flavorful, decadent meal. Our waitress was an absolute delight. The place was beautiful. Absolutely delicious and amazing all around. I can't wait to come back!!"

"What can I say that hasn’t been said? Food and service is stellar, probably my favorite place to dine in the state of Michigan. The setting is unique and interesting but fabulous at the same time. Have never had a poor experience here, and hope Stella always will be a part of my trips to Traverse City."

"Amazing Overall Experience! The entire meal was an experience in complex textures, and flavors. It was such a pleasurable meal beginning with the excellent customer service and staff who had spot on recommendations and were incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the food to the atmosphere and ambiance of the location and subtle lighting."
